Well his point "Even claiming "good" CSS support based on existing test suites is a lie" is where I read exessive relativism in his reply. I do agree with you that you have to be aware of the nature of currently available test cases, but to discount them as equivalent to 'no evidence' is for me a step too far. The second class of test-suite you mention is an impossibility - it would depend on the needs of particular designers and approaches to CSS used (looking like the CSSDestroy tests - <http://www.literarymoose.info/=/css.xhtml> - advantageous to Opera largely because of the designers heavy use of generated content). Considering the complete lack of availability of such platonic test cases, I still stand by my choice of at least footnoting my statement with the currently available evidence, and I very strongly refute the suggestion that such footnoting is 'lying'. I've added qualifying statements in the footnote as such.
